Urdahl to be challenged by Klinksiek for Supervisor

by Matt Marquardt –

Kyle Klinksiek will be challenging incumbent Jay Urdahl for the District 1  Cerro Gordo County Supervisor seat.

Klinksiek, a 42 year-old truck driver, is running as an Independent.

Today via phone, Klinksiek said “It’s time for a change.”  He said Urdahl has been in office “long enough.  Twenty-four years, that’s a long time.”

Klinksiek pointed to the condition of the North Iowa Fairgrounds as an example of Urdahl’s time as a Supervisor.  “The place is in bad shape, all under his watch.”

Klinksiek also said today he would have “no problem” engaging in an NIT-sponsored debate with Urdahl that would be video-taped and shared on Youtube.  “I’m fine with that, set it up,” he said.

Urdahl will be on the ballot as a Democrat, but he has sought campaign help and contributions from staunch Republicans.

Urdahl approached Dr. Gary Blodgett of Clear Lake for help in raising funds for his re-election campaign some months ago.   Dr. Blodgett obliged and wrote a fundraising letter which was mailed out to several dozen potential donors.  This despite the fact that the Urdahl campaign had over $15,000 already on hand.

Klinksiek said he doesn’t want any contributions.

“I’m doing this all on my own,” he explained.

Klinksiek invited anyone with questions to call him at 641-420-9715 or send an email to
